What is Inulin?
Inulin is a starch found in a variety of fruits and vegetables. Inulin is not digested by the stomach and instead goes to the bowels where in can improve digestive functions and general health. It has also recently caught the attention of the BBC in their documentaries on ‘How To Stay Young’ and ‘The Truth About Sleep’. These documentaries found that Inulin can help to overcome obstacles associated with aging and also improve your sleep.
Why use Inulin Powder?
Used in baking, making syrup, or to add sweetness to smoothies, Inulin can be used in many ways. However, it is most renowned for its digestive benefits. As a prebiotic, it can encourage good bacteria in the gut, leading to better digestive health and regulation of bowel functions. Its use can also help to decrease the body’s ability to produce certain kinds of fats and increase fibre intake. Most recently, the BBC has researched the benefits of Inulin on our sleep, suggesting that the secret to a restful night may lie in the gut. It has even been suggested that an Inulin supplement is more effective than sources of Inulin in food such as hummus and lentils.

Inulin is perfect for anyone who is looking to support normal bowel function and improve digestive health. With recent research, it may also be of use to those looking to support sleep and the aging process.
